World News – US – Brett Rypien to start quarterback against Jets


ENGLEWOOD, Colo – As the Broncos prepare for a Week 4 game against the New York Jets, they will look to Brett Rypien as a starting quarterback

Second-year Rypien will make the first start of his young career when the team travel to New York for « Thursday Night Football », head coach Vic Fangio announced Tuesday

“We’ve had a year and a second training camp and a few weeks with Brett here,” said Fangio “We just think he deserves a chance here to see how he can do here, as a starter with a short week of prep and take a look at Brett that way « 

Fangio says the team have the option of « shuffling Jeff [Driskel] » if the Broncos think they have to

For the tenth time in franchise history, however, the Broncos will have a different start at the quarterback in three straight games

Drew Lock started the team’s Week 2 game against the Steelers, Driskel led the attack against the Bucs and now Rypien will have his turn against the Jets The Broncos last had quarterbacks of different starts in three consecutive games in 2017 when Brock Osweiler, Paxton Lynch and Trevor Siemian rotated in the second half of the season Before that, the Broncos hadn’t looked to three different starting quarterbacks in consecutive weeks since 1983

Rypien is the team’s ninth quarterback to start a game since Peyton Manning retired at the end of the 2015 season. He joins Siemian, Lynch, Osweiler, Case Keenum, Joe Flacco, Brandon Allen, Lock and Driskel on the growing list

« I think it doesn’t matter who we play at the moment we really need a win » said Rypien « So yeah that’s the main goal The goal for me is just to try to get better over the next couple of days We’re not going to have a lot of full-speed reps with the guys It’s [about] mental reps and making sure I’m logged in on wards and things like that If we can do that, we can go over there and shake the ball Thursday night « 

Rypien was active three times last season as Denver’s quarterback, but has never seen a game

He took his first regular-season shots in week three when he replaced Jeff Driskel in the fourth quarter Rypien finished his only practice 8 of 9 for 53 yards and one interception The pick came in fourth and 1 off the 13-yard line at Tampa Bay as Rypien searched for Jerry Jeudy in the end zone

The Broncos gathered 13 first downs and 226 yards against the Buccaneers, and Denver gained three of those first downs and 55 yards in Rypien’s only practice

Rypien, who was not drafted in 2019, ended his career at Boise State with a 64% completion percentage, nearly 14,000 yards, 90 touchdowns and 149Queback’s score

The Broncos held a virtual tour on Tuesday, but released an estimate of a practice participation report

Thirty-two years later, Mark’s nephew Brett will receive his own opportunity to start his first career game

Right tackle Elijah Wilkinson is injured and will be placed in IR, head coach Vic Fangio told KOA NewsRadio on Tuesday

Under the new NFL Injury Reserve policy, Calitro is eligible to return to the active roster in as little as three weeks

« We will have a decision by tomorrow which direction we are going to take, » head coach Vic Fangio said on Monday

Nearly 2,000 residents of the fictional town of Colorado were in attendance for the game

« I think the best thing that comes out of this 0-3 start is that we have a short week, » said Harris « You have to forget [the loss] You just have to go out there and play football »
